Could they not just let it go?

I mean, really! Are they that proud of her affilitation with Alcoholics Anonymous? It even has anonymous in the title, so are you supposed to print this in your obituary? It is put in the same sentence as her membership with the church. Did she make someone mad because she didn't leave them enough and they thought that to publicize her alcohol problem would be fun?

Message to my family: Please leave off any mention of how I yelled at that insurance lady that time, okay? You don't have to tell that I cry every time a policeman pulls me over for speeding and so I never received a speeding ticket. And, you don't have to list blogging as my occupation.

Oh dear. Hmm, yes, I don't think they thought that one through!

Thanks for visiting my blog again, if you send me your e-mail address, I can send you a) lots of interesting marine facts that hubby keeps telling me and b) lots of lovely English words for you to use!

Hope you have a great day.

Ha, ha, ha! That is funny! Do you think they let young children help write that?;) They tell everything, you know! I would hate to hear what mine would come up with!

I suppose maybe they were proud that she was sober for 20 years. I mean, that's quite an accomplishment to overcome an addiction like that.

Maybe she was very vocal about it, who knows?

I'm just afraid that they will print on mine that I racked up to many library fines......

Just cause she went doesn't mean she was sober. She might have gone to Lord Catholic Church for confession. They did go together in one sentence. Maybe that is why she was a member of AA for 20 years. Glad they didn't say she was a member of Bubba's Bar, Lord Church, and AA all in one.

oh, I forgot to comment that I think it's funny that she didn't know the word "rag."

I was at a friend's and they had a visitor from Australia and she kept talking about her "like" and how pretty and restful it was. I asked her what a "like" was and she looked at me like I was nuts.

She said "You don't know what a like is? You know, a like? A body of water with grass and trees around it?"

Then I knew it was a lake. I am lousy with accents but I think they are so beautiful!

Hey, I'm giving you a heads up. I am giving away All Detergent on my blog and thought with your family you might be interested.

One time he rolled over on it in the middle of the night. I was facing away from him so had to reach behind me and try and push him awake, and I was saying "My hair! You're laying on my hair."

oh it was lovely but a pain. One time a lady walked by me and her coat button caught on my hair and pulled it...ow!

I just got tired of sitting on it, and one time I was in a public restroom and I bent down to pick up a bag and my hair got in the toilet....eeeewww!
